Solid Builds

Note: My thread got stickied! Read the entire thread, there is a LOT of knowledge and discussion contained within. Explaining the reasons ~why~ some of the stuff you may ask is the way it is.


This thread is dedicated to getting players solid builds that will work the best for them to play in game with the desired results. If the style of play is too much of a gamble or is not fun, it is not a valid build or tactic. As somebody who has done countless instant level 30 characters, I've probably done and tried everything you will suggest. If I haven't done what you are asking -- I will. I will make a character and judge what build(s) do that best!
WILL UPDATE THIS STARTING POST AS PEOPLE REQUEST BUILDS, WITH THE REQUESTED BUILD FROM FURTHER IN THE THREAD.
*All builds made with the Character Calculator Located here: http://infinitum.dyndns.org/crpg/calc.htm
*New calculator put up by Druzhina_Urugash: http://alpha-lider19.ru/MB/
* Archer damage calculator http://alpha-lider19.ru/MB/?go=archercalc

NOTE: due to the most recent update in march, 2013 where many 1hs became 0 slot, 1h is the go-to hybrid for sidearms for crossbows, etc. Especially with the slot increase to 2 for all xbows. I have not updated the individual descriptions since, however.

Standard 2h/pole dedicated builds, Just change 2h wpf to Polearm if desired:

1h cav is a pretty balanced build since you need both enough speed and damage enough to kill with bump slashes.

That HA build seems to have little WPF. Does it really affect much? Kind of curious.

It has enough for the PD, and is fairly accurate. You'd be surprised. People see HA's and assume they aren't going to hurt, then it rolls around and does crazy damage, regularly oneshotting people in light armor.
15-24 is alright if you have heirloomed bows for the damage, but man you are just an annoying fly like that tbh. 15-24 can't kill people in plate without MW bows and arrows... tried it and disliked it. 21/18 HA with 1 athletics works well though.

the problem with 1h-cav builds is zero IF, it is one of the most important skills, reduces damage taken considerable to zero IF and increasing amount of hit points. that's why i asked you. or i will just not give any points to athletics

if you can afford a horse always, do it. Ride or die :)
21-15: 7 IF/ 7 PS/ 5 riding/ 5 wm/ 5 shield/ 0 ath, have fun.
I just really like the movement speed on ground. Pros and cons.

They are both good balanced dedicated 2h builds.
I would suggest 24/15 as being better, though. It is in NA at least. Those more agi heavy characters are favored in EU though, not sure why.

Swashbuckler
>insert your build. We all know you're the swashbucklin' man in NA. 30/9 for you isn't it?
